CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

There is a gathering at Cape County Park South to remember two children and raise money to help others still fighting childhood cancer.

The Abbypalooza Memory Walk got underway Saturday morning at 8.

The walk is in honor of Abby Jensen and Brody Gard. Both kids lost their battle to rare forms of brain cancer last year.

It's $25 to walk, and all proceeds will go to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

There's plenty more to do than walk. There will also be music, and antique car show, pumpkin painting, kid's games and more.
